“Up to 50 Gigatons of methane could be rapidly released from under arctic ice” - Arctic Methane Emergency Group. As for appropriate interventions, there are a number of things to do immediately in parallel: Consider practices and regulations that are having, or risk having, a heating effect on the Arctic. A postponement of drilling in the Arctic would be sensibl [...]
U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) research physicists and engineers from the Plasma Physics Division, working at the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) transmitter facility, Gakona, Alaska, successfully produced a sustained high density plasma cloud in Earth's upper atmosphere. "Previous artificial plasma density clouds have lifetimes of only te [...]
Geoengineering: Ocean Iron Fertilization (OIF) Russ George dumps iron in the Pacific Ocean with his Haida Salmon Restoration Project. A very large subsequent algae bloom was spotted on satellite. Outrage ensues followed by scientific studies. An American businessman made waves last month when, without asking permission, he dumped a bunch of iron sulfate into the Pacif [...]
Nimbus is a fundamental science program focused on obtaining a comprehensive understanding of the lightning process, its associated emissions (such as x-rays), and its ionospheric components to better protect troops, ordnance, and other military assets. This program will yield insights into other high-voltage, high-current electromagnetic phenomena. [...]
Project LUCY aims to turn erupting arctic methane vents into artificial noctilucent cloud making volcanoes. Two high-powered microwaves, like the HAARP facility’s Ionospheric Research Instrument (IRI), compress atmospheric methane into nano diamond powder to reflect sunlight back into space. Also see: The ANGELS Proposal (Arctic Natural Gas Extraction Liquefacti [...]
Fresh water has been dubbed “Blue Gold” in many publications as potable water will be to this century what oil was to the last century. Less than three percent of the water on the earth’s surface is fresh water. When we deduct the amount in the ice at each pole and the rivers flowing in uninhabited areas that number is less than one percent. From this amount the nearl [...]
The rain in Spain falls mainly on the plane. Or so the saying goes, but new research has confirmed that airplanes do cause clouds to dump their contents prematurely, often around airports, and in this week's show we explore this weather-altering effect of aviation. A fallstreak hole (also known as a hole punch cloud, punch hole cloud, skypunch, cloud canal or clou [...]
Synthesis report: “Deliberate injections of sulphur-containing compounds into the stratosphere ... could have substantial unintended effects on the ozone layer.” [...]
E-PEACE, an experiment which while not identifying as SRM resulted in clear implications for marine cloud brightening (MCB) technology post hoc; E-PEACE combined a targeted aircraft campaign off the coast of Monterey in July and August 2011 with embedded ship and satellite observations (Fig. 2) and modeling studies. Atmospheric conditions in the northeastern Pacific d [...]
SPICE (Stratospheric Particle Injection for Climate Engineering) is an EPSRC, NERC and STFC co-funded 3 1/2 year collaboration between the University of Bristol, the University of Cambridge, the University of Oxford and the University of Edinburgh which began in October 2010. The SPICE project is investigating the effectiveness of Solar Radiation Management (SRM). SRM [...]
UK Government response to The Regulation of Geoengineering: The Royal Society has launched SRMGI in partnership with the TWAS and the EDF to explore SRM [...]
“Weather Modification technologies that claim to achieve such large scale or dramatic effects do not have a sound scientific basis (e.g. hail canons, ionization methods) and should be treated with suspicion.” [...]
“Contrail cirrus contributes a large fraction to the aviation induced climate impact (comparable to 50 years of aviation C02) Satellite data analyses suggest observable impact of aviation on cirrus cover and radiation fluxes. The climate impact of aviation induced contrail cirrus depends on aircraft properties (e.g. soot emissions) and routing (avoid cirrus forming re [...]
“if the public comes to see geoengineering as, as one attendee put it, 'a crazy idea cooked up by rich Anglo Saxons to dominate the climate,' then they will all be rightfully tarred and feathered.” Asilomar Conference Center, Pacific Grove, California. [...]
“Homeland Security Advanced Research Projects Agency (HSARPA) has embarked on what appears to be a hitherto missing key component of the hurricane research effort, HAMP ... (which) adopts the view that a good way to understand a meteorological system is to perturb it in some way.” Contracts & Grants Connected to HAMP Studies HAMP (Project FY2008-06-16); DHS Contra [...]
Bill Gates’ “Stratoshield” would later be reborn and readied for a test flight in 2018 as David Keith’s “Stratocruiser.” Called a Stratospheric Shield, or StratoShield for short, the system would deliver sulfur dioxide to an altitude of 30 kilometers in liquid form, through a very long hose supported by large, long-duration balloons [...]

The radar scatter from dusty plasmas will be studied with the Charged Aerosol Release Experiment (CARE) launched from Wallops Island, Virginia in Spring of 2009. A dusty plasma will be produced in the ionosphere by releasing an expanding shell with 66kg of Aluminum Oxide particulates. The expansion velocity of the shell will be 2.5 km/s. Ground radars and optical syst [...]
Letter to William Laska, program manager for DHS’s Advanced Research Projects Agency, from Richard Spinrad, director of NOAA’s Office of Atmospheric Research (OAR) saying no to DHS funds to study hurricane mitigation, citing past failures with Project Cirrus, Stormfury, and SCUD. [...]
The Environmental Modification Accountability Act #ENMODAA
An Act To End Atmospheric Experimentation Without Notification
Our solution is an addendum to the international weather warfare ban requiring two things:
• TRANSPARENCY: a worldwide requirement to give 48 hour notice before modifying or experimenting in our sky or surrounding atmosphere.
• VERIFICATION: create a worldwide citizen-powered sensor network to monitor atmospheric conditions, record video footage of sky conditions, analyze rainfall samples, and display atmospheric aerosols in real-time on a publically available website.
Hands Off Mother Earth Manifesto: A Permanent Ban on Geoengineering
110 civil society organizations and popular movements denounce geoengineering and demand an immediate stop to all open-air experiments.
